Dear Human Resources and Security,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which relate to any article 16, article 12B and article 40 (staff regulations) applications made by Klaus Dieter-Borchardt, former deputy Director General of DG Energy.

In particular, I request a note of all Mr. Dieter-Borchardt's job titles at the Commission including dates held; copies of any application(s) that he has made under article 12b, 16 and 40 to undertake a new professional activity; and all documents (correspondence, emails, meeting notes etc) related to the authorisation of the new role or roles.

Yours faithfully,

Belén Balanyá

Dear Ms. Balanyá,

Thank you for your e-mail of 26.10.2020. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered on 27.10.2020 under reference number GESTDEM 2020/6446.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on 18.11.2020. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

Please note that the private third party running the Ask the EU website is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data via that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address, and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply from, the Commission.

For information on how we process your personal data visit our page Privacy statement – access to documents.

Yours faithfully,
Access to Documents Team

Dear Human Resources and Security,

Please pass this on to European Commission
Secretary-General
Transparency, Document Management & Access to Documents (SG.C.1) , as this is a confirmatory application

Thank you for the reply dated 8 December to my request reference number GESTDEM 2020/6446 and the information that was supplied.

However, I was disappointed that the Commission did not release the documents requested, which I consider to be in the public interest, and I would like you to reconsider this via this confirmatory application. I further note that presumably the restrictions on Mr Borchardt will eventually be published in the 2020 publication of information concerning occupational activities of senior officials after leaving the service.

It makes sense that documents covered by my request, including the list of files that Mr Borchardt worked on for the three years before he left the Commission, and the email exchange between the Commission and Mr. Borchardt are made available to boost the monitoring and enforcement of the restrictions, and to be able to confirm that the Commission has done what is necessary to prevent conflict of interests. Both reasons of strong public interest.

A full history of my request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/kdb_...

I look forward to hearing from you,

Belen Balanya
